Storyboard Text

  • But I didn't get an attorney! I need to appeal.
  • Gideon v. Wainwright
  • *gasp*
  • He could not afford a lawyer and the state law only granted lawyers to people who, if found guilty, could be given the death penalty.
  • Now I have to be present!
  • The Supreme court reviewed the case and decided that they would hear it.
  • The Supreme Court decided that Gideon was due a lawyer during his trial and when he was granted one he was retried and was released of his charges.
  • This changed the 6th amendment to require a state to give a lawyer to anyone no matter what charges they were on.
  • Now any of these people, if they get arrested, have to have a lawyer present. This made a great change as now everyone has a fair chanvce when they go to trial.
